South Africa's Harmony Gold eyes potential in AngloGold Ashanti assets

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's Harmony Gold is interested in many projects including AngloGold Ashanti's Mponeng operations, CEO Peter Steenkamp said on Tuesday.

Mponeng is "probably one of the many projects we are looking at", Steenkamp said in a media call but declined further comment.

AngloGold said in May that it would review divestment options for its Mponeng mine and other South African assets to focus on higher returns elsewhere.
